Olivia de Havilland,
Police officer Patty Butler, alias "Chicklet," is the live-in girlfriend of Thomas 'Stick' Henderson to gather evidence. Detective Bo Lockley is instructed to try to find her, not knowing she's also a cop.
The lady is Mrs. Hilyard, a wealthy poetess who lives in a three-story city mansion and her cage is her elevator, which stops a dozen feet short of the main floor due to an electrical failure on a July 4th weekend. She rings her outside alarm, eventually noticed by a drunken derelict, who breaks into the house, ignores her plight and helps himself to various items and alcohol. He leaves with his loot but returns a while later with a curvy prostitute and three teenage hoodlums, who proceed to terrorize Mrs. Hilyard as they wreck her home.Written by
If one word could sum up Lady in Cage, it would be INTENSE!! For a 1964 film, this has loads of melodrama, fright, and sheer suspense.Check out a young James Caan, and a gorgeous, and cute Jennifer Bilingsley.This film is brutally straight-forward in terms of its characterization of the scum,thugs, and low-life of society,.. the acting in this movie, all across the board is outstanding.I give it an 8 out of 10, if not a 9/10.
